A new Guitar Center is planned for the Coastal North Town Center in North Myrtle Beach. The new location is located at 1240 Highway 17 North near the Five Guys hamburger joint.
A spokesperson for the company said in an email the new store's planned opening date is May 16.
The company has seven locations in South Carolina, but none on the Grand Strand. They already have two locations each in Columbia, Charleston and Spartanburg, and one in Greenville.
Guitar Center is known for selling a wide variety of musical instruments, including drums, keyboards, and orchestra instruments, although guitars are the main focus.
The company also repairs, restrings and refurbishes guitars, and offers guitar lessons and workshops.
